US Congress genocide resolution would wreck Turkish-Armenian rapprochement
Debates intensify on the likelihood of the US Congress in April recognizing the Armenian "genocide".
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said a resolution is not expected, but if one did emerge, then the normalization process in Turkish-Armenian relations would collapse.
Davutoglu evaluated Turkish-Armenian relations during an interview on a private news channel. Turkey's top diplomat said Azerbaijan and Armenia have marked some progress on the Karabakh dispute recently.
Davtoglu said further that they expected Turkish-Armenian ties to take shape in compliance with the signed protocols, adding that it would not be the right move to set conditions for some of the articles.
Ahmet Davutoglu also warned that if Turkey is accused in the US Congress, the process will break down.
Armenia insists that the killings of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire in 1915 were genocide. Turkey says the numbers are inflated and that many people died on both sides during the chaotic period.
